Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been involved in genealogy research on my family tree for many years. I gathered a lot of information from visiting cemeteries and found Find A Grave a great place to share. I finally realized that I was visiting cemeteries multiple times because of new discoveries. That is when I decided to map entire cemeteries by photographing all readable markers and providing links to families if possible. The cemeteries that are listed below have been completely photographed and uploaded in 2011-2013.

First Interment in Silver Brook

Hey John,

I wanted to let you know that I stumbled across an obit for Annie May MURPHY (1887-1887) and posted it on her memorial (Find A Grave Memorial # 82199051). I was working on some MURPHY records, and I found it just by chance. It is especially significant since Annie's grave was apparently the very first in Old Silver Brook cemetery in Anderson!

Thanks for setting up and caring for Annie's memorial and for all you do continue to do on Find A Grave.

Have a great day!

Duplicate Profile for John Robinson
I have the original page for John Robinson. Would you like to merge the information and me transfer it over to you since you have more information on him? It would be no bother at all.

Robert and Frances Gaines

I am a direct descendant of Robert Gaines and Frances Featherstone Gaines. I'd really appreciate transfer of those memorials so I can add a lot of family information if you happen to not be a descendant. They are
Robert: 72517551
Frances: 130883656

Thank you and kind regards,

Brian M. Rowland

John, Someone may have already asked if you have any information on James Stevenson Callaham, son of Nancy Callaham, of South Carolina. James married my relative, Amy Robinson, and they were in Chattooga County, Georgia, where I now live. It appears that they went west- stopping at Simpson Co, MS for a while, and then going on to Smith Co, TX. I would love to know more about them, but they seem to be pretty much forgotten. Thanks

I stumbled across Obituary information for Floyd Mattison Cox (#83183172). Here is a link for you to see the information there:

What a fascinating life he led.

Thanks for all the work you are doing in my husband's beloved part of the world.
